CALL FOR PAPERS (doc) (pdf)

The ISEC conference is planned as the main yearly conference of the newly created Special Interest Group on Software Engineering, SIGSE under the umbrella of the Computer Society of India, CSI. The Third ISEC will be held in Infosys Mysore campus, host to one of the world's largest education centres.ISEC will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world to share the results of their work. We invite technical papers describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, empirical, and experimental software engineering research. Papers describing Industry Experience are especially welcome. Our goal is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in the field of software engineering. All submissions should clearly identify their contribution to the state of the art and their potential usefulness. Work that has appeared elsewhere (in some conference or journal) cannot be submitted for ISEC. Work that is currently under consideration elsewhere (a conference or a journal) also cannot be submitted. Submissions are invited broadly in all aspects of software engineering, including but not limited to, the following:

- Requirements Engineering - Testing and Static Analysis
- Empirical Software Engineering and Metrics - Specification and Verification
- Software Performance Engineering - Model Driven Software Engineering
- Software Architecture and Design - Tools and Environments
- Development Paradigms and Processes - Maintenance and Evolution
- People issues in Software Engineering - Quality Management
- Component Based Software Engineering - Object-Oriented Technology
- Service oriented architecture and web services - Distributed software development
- Case Studies and Industrial Experience - Software as a Service
- Cloud Computing and Software Engineering - Knowledge based Software Engg
- Agent oriented Software Engg  

In cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT, some of the best papers from the flagship conferences FSE (Symposium on Foundations of Software Engg) and ICSE (International Conference on Software Engineering) will be presented as Keynotes/Invited papers in ISEC.

Paper Submission

Research Paper submissions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical quality, and relevance to conference. Submission of papers will be carried out electronically via the Web in PDF format. Research Papers should not exceed ten pages, and follow ACM SIG guidelines, visit here. We plan to have the proceedings published through ACM and have it available in ACM Digital library. There are also plans to bring out a special issue in some journal of repute. Please visit here to submit your paper.

Experience Reports

Experience Reports Experience reports are not meant to report new results or new knowledge but describe some interesting experience that is not clear or known. It could be on experience with some technology or methodology, or anything else. An experience report is expected to give a brief description of current state of practice in the chosen problem to motivate the importance of what is being discussed, describe the approach or experiment, and must clearly document the benefits or reasons why the experience should be of interest to readers. The paper should also cite some key references in theoretical and other work on that problem and relate the work done to the existing theories and concepts in that problem area. An experience report is generally not very useful if it merely describes "this is how we did it" - proper context, motivation, comparison, and references must be provided. Experience reports should also follow the ACM format and must be no more than 10 pages long. Please visit here to submit your experience report, Prefix "Experience Report" to your title.


Short work-in-progress papers describing an incomplete yet powerful idea, both in area of research as well as experience, are welcome, restricted to not more than 2 full size papers. Please visit here to submit your experience report, Prefix "Poster" to your title.

Student Symposium

This symposium is directed at The symposium is open to the students of M.Tech program (in second year) or PhD program (after 3rd year). The student (with approval from adviser) needs to submit a viewgraph /proposal of about 5 pages with the detailed proposal covering motivation and background for the work and importance of the topic, status of current and future work, alongside providing a review of the literature highlighting the research gaps and the positioning of your work w.r.t the current art. Also include a outline of the work including a rigorous analysis of the work highlighting the novelty/originality/innovativeness of your work.

This is an excellent forum for the student to get feedback from the researchers and industry professionals in the field, not to mention the possibility of opportunity to work with research groups in industry and academia. Please contact symposium chair for any additional details


There will be a limited number of tutorials in the conference. Proposals for tutorials, including about two paragraphs on proposed topic, its relevance to SE audience, and details of presenter, may be sent to the tutorial chair
